The success of our future is rooted in the echoes of our past.
Catholic education in Wichita Falls is longstanding. Notre Dame Catholic School continues the mission started nearly 115 years ago by those who desired to educate and form the children of this community by bringing the light of Jesus Christ into their hearts, minds and souls. That light still to this day shines as bright as ever as our dedicated faculty, staff and administrators continue the holy work of those who came before us.
Our school has seen both peaks and valleys since its spiritual beginnings in 1904. Success and failure. Goals met and those still left to strive for. And through it all an undeniable truth is clear to see. Those who have been fortunate to be a part of this school community remember times when it has positively influenced their lives and the lives of their children. Those fond memories and meaningful moments echo throughout our history.
And now it’s time to Wake Up The Echoes.
Our school needs your help. We are grateful for the many blessings we already possess. Yet the cost to exceptionally educate our students continues to rise. Facilities at both campuses are in great need of upgrades. Textbooks, technology and other classroom amenities need replacing.
All are issues that can be addressed through the generosity of our school community’s time, talent and treasure. Today we ask for your financial support in this year’s Annual Appeal.
We hope that you can recall a time in your own life when Notre Dame Catholic School has made a difference. In doing so, we ask for a donation of $19.04 to honor our past for the benefit of our future. If you are able to give more, please do. Yet we hope the full participation of our school community in this appeal will define its success just as much as the monetary end result.
Together we can ensure that our school continues to make a significant difference in the lives of generations of students to come. It’s time to let our commitment be known and to let our voices ring out cheering the name of Notre Dame.
It’s time to Wake Up The Echoes.
God bless & Go Knights,
